I think because we've defeated them so many times in battle and conquered them.
Why do Turks have so much more respect and admiration than anyone else *For us British*?
Maybe because defeated in war and marched through your streets as conqueroring hereos. Turkish men watched weeping while Turkish wives widows and daughters threw themselves at British soldiers looking for sex because they knew the British were forever the masters of the turks. Surrender monkey Mustafa Kemal Atatürk turks pissed himself at the thought of fighting British soldiers without German leaders and like a coward didn't find a shot until the British army left.
